If You Hate Your Life, Then Change It
By Judi Singleton
Few days ago, I noticed that my car had been using a lot of gas. I wondered if it was just that
I was driving more in stop and go traffic. However when I started using
about four times as much as usual, I really started to take notice. Where
was it going? I usually used $10 worth of gasoline to commute to work; but now bill was $40/week. Either I had a gas leak somewhere or someone was stealing the gas from the car. I was not sure which.
A few days later, while sitting on my back porch I noticed a puddle on the driveway under my car. That puddle had been there for a while, but I figured it
was due to a leak in my power steering fluid. However, it looked a little
too far back from the front of the car to have from a leak from the power steering.
I poked my hand into the puddle and smelled it. Sure enough, it was gas.
The discovery really scared me. I could have been blown up with the car! Leaking
$30 worth or gasoline a week is rally a lot of gas!
If you are losing energy in the form of, health, prosperity, experiencing
bliss, or relationships, you have a leak in your system, just like the gas
leak in my truck. No one is siphoning off your goodness. Your leak is in your
system; only you can repair it.
The purpose of your life is to expand your energy. How you use this energy
is up to you. Are you increasing your energy or do you have an energy leak
in your vehicle? Do you spend a lot of time wondering about life instead of
living it? What is life giving for you? Are you doing those things
or are you only doing what keeps your emotionally, physically, spiritually,
and mentally dead?
Do only what brings you life. Do not do what deadens you.
The reason your life is not what you would like it to be is that you are doing
things, that are not life giving. The answer to that is simple. So your job is to find out what is deadening for you and stop doing it.
Instead, do only things that bring you life.
If you use as much energy choosing to do life giving activities as
you do to deaden yourself and used it for things you love what
would you be doing?
If you took the energy you are wasting on things that suck
and used it for things you love, what would you be doing differently?
When you do things you hate and resent, you die a little every day. These
things may be things that our society approve of; but you do not want to do
them so for you they are killers. For example, you might be spending a lot of time at
church when what you really want to do is to work in your garden. You are
giving away your time and power every time you make this choice.
What is really important to you? Take a walk in the woods, get close to nature,
and spend time with your family. Talk to your animals; they make as much sense
as any of your human friends. Simplify your life. If you do this you are giving
yourself the present of life.
You may be very careful with money. I am not. So that is one place in my
life I have an energy leak. However, what you give your attention to is more
important than how you use your money. If you give away your time on this
earth not doing anything you want to do that energizes you, you will end up
in a big hole. (No pun intended.)
Everything you invest your attention in, brings more of the same. What we pay attention to grows, whether it is fear or love. If we live
thinking, "When I retire I will do what I want to do. Until then I will do this job
that I hate." Watch out. Retirement comes and you have had a heart attack and never
get to do what you want. So choose now the things you love and
invigorate your life. You are the one creating your life. This is your
life. If you don't like it change it.
